Great location! Very clean. Hostel staff were friendly and the bar attached to it had good food and atmosphere. Cheap bike rentals were great to see the city! Also had a nice rooftop patio. Would definitely stay here again!

Friendly staff who know the area well. Very clean and safe! The location was perfect for me, right by Kyoto station, giving easy access to all of the sites I was interested in. They also served a free Christmas supper for us!

-Facilities were incredibly clean -Staff were super helpful -One minor thing I noticed was that the atmosphere is lacking if you stay in the 2nd building as most of the activitity happens in the main lobby.It's a bit of a pain to go all the way to the bottom floor and cross the buildings in order to go back up to the 2nd floor to get the atmosphere of the lobby Overall, it was a very good hostel. Visit the ramen place nearby (it's on the map they provide) great value and delicious!

K's House Kyoto is one of the best hostels I have stayed at in Asia. The staff members were helpful, the accommodations were clean, and it was easy to meet other travelers. The hostel provides rental bikes at a low cost for those whom wish to explore Kyoto a more scenic way than bus or train. However, the hostel is also very close to the the train and bus station. You can easily access all of Kyoto due to the hostel's prime location. I definitely recommend staying at this hostel.

Thank you so much for your warmth and hospitality. Especially to the gentlemen bartender with whom we had several great chats with. His reccomendations and advice did not go astray. It's good walking distance to key locations and transport, including the Subway and the Gion District. If I ever find myself down Kyoto way again, I'm definitely coming back to K's House! xx

This is a hostel with international standard, so it has a western feeling to it. Personally I would have liked a bit more Japanese touch in the rooms and also the possibility to have Japanese breakfast (At the cafe next door they serve Westen breakfast) But this is just my personal taste, all the rest was good, helpful and friendly staff, clean, good to reach. The area itself is not too special but you get easily to Higashiyama with its temples and to the station. Very good value for money.

I found it strange that a towel does not come automatically with a room, but one has to rent it additionally. No big deal, just surprising.
